Caribbean Day 22: Homeward

I’ve filled 6 pages of my passport in 1.5 years of travel with 10 countries. I think I’m averaging around 3 pages a year at the moment, with 36 open pages, and 9 years remaining on the validity of my passport. I am burning through vacation faster than I accrue it though, I had more…

Caribbean Day 16: Scuba

My alarm went off at 7:30 to get my butt out of bed, set and ready for my morning pool dive and training. The Shearwater hotel is close by and has the pool we’ll be using for training. It’s a really cool hotel perched on a very sheer cliff with a great view. It doesn’t…
